Winner of People's Choice Award 2012 Quarry gardens Exhibitiion


Every spring just as the days start getting longer and hotter, and the Tui arrive in the garden to stake their claim on trees in which to nest, so to do the school fish turn up. On some days from our deck you can see half a dozen or more schools stretching out over the horizon. Just as you are thinking this is nature at its best, the damn pursainer boats appear, planes buzz around spotting the schools for the boats to put their nets around and scoop every last one out of the ocean. This got me thinking. One day soon as the Tui arrive in the spring, the fish won't and the big fish which hunt the little fish, and the birds which pick up the pieces will be no longer, the hunt will be over!
